SUMMER CAMP OVERVIEW
The right Ohio Summer Camp should be one of the most fun filled and growing experiences of a child's life.
A Program with Purpose
Camp is for You
At Pleasant Hill Outdoor Camp you'll find a camp home where you not only have a great time, but you can learn new things, meet new friends, and discover the spirit of adventure, inside of you. At camp you'll get to know God in a new and fresh way, and learn that He loves you for who you are without condition or limitation! You will also learn the value of positive, healthy relationships from counselors who love you, want the best for you, and are there to make sure you and your friends have the best week ever.
Come discover that warm feeling that comes from our special brand of camping, a place where you can shine from the inside out!
A Staff with Commitment
Our camp is special because of our staff. Here, you'll find that our staff cares about YOU. They are there for you to listen and share. You are celebrated for your new achievements and your counselors are there to encourage you along the way. From the counselors, to the kitchen crew and support staff, they are an exceptional group of mature and responsible people who really love kids. They come from many different states, but they all come for one reason…to help you find a place to shine!
Summer Camp Programs for Everyone!
Is my Camper considered to be in 6th or 7th Grade?
We understand that the transition from elementary school to junior high is different for every child. If your camper is in that transition summer, you have the choice to have your camper stay with the 6th grade camps, or advanced to the 7th grade camps, depending on what you feel your camper is ready for. After all, who knows your camper better than you?
Grades 7-12 (Jr & Sr High)
Read what these parents said:
"I just wanted to tell you how much our daughter enjoyed herself this summer at your camp. This was her, our, first experience and it couldn't have been better! She loved her counselors and the entire experience. When she first approached us about a summer camp, I was hesitant and overwhelmed. I searched for camps and yours stood out. You answered my questions and your staff helped me with payments; all of which was appreciated. When we arrived to drop her off, the check in procedure was helpful and easy. Everyone made us feel welcome. While she was there, we were able to catch up via the pictures your staff took which made us feel connected. When we picked her up she couldn't stop talking about how much fun she had. Thanks so much!"
Dear (Camp Director),
"Our ten year old son, (Ben), just returned from a week at Pleasant Hill. To better understand the situation, I need to give you a little background. (Ben), our only child, was adopted from Russia at the age of 11 months. And up until last Sunday, he had never spent a night away from us. We are a little protective to say the least. We advised Chris, his counselor, to expect a few challenges and to call us if necessary. According to our son, Chris helped him through some very rough times. Because of his patience and kindness, (Ben) now has a new level of confidence and pride in his abilities. I am so impressed with the time Chris took to calm and reassure a very homesick child, helping him to overcome his fears and make it through the week. Many would have opted for the easy way out, leaving a child with a sense of failure that they would carry with them for a long time. We are so grateful to Chris for what he has given our son and would appreciate if you could pass that on to him."
PS: We loved the daily pictures on the website and the email option... great ideas!!
"My son attended your camp last summer, it was his first time away from home, so I was a little nervous. He had an absolute blast! He can't wait to see you all this summer! Thanks for a great camping experience!"
"Thank you so much for giving my son a wonderful camp experience! This was Josh's first resident camp. I was looking for a positive and nurturing setting with kids his own age and I definitely found it in Pleasant Hill. He will definitely be back next year. Thanks again."
"...It was nice to see that she (my daughter) wrote in her journal about the love of Jesus and her expression of Christian values. it helped me realize that this was not only a camp for growing and independence and character building, but I feel that she got an opportunity to grow as a Christian, too."
"Its all my kids talked about for a month!"
"It is obvious how well you've trained your summer staff. They are courteous, helpful and service oriented. My daughter just loved her counselor."
